Most of us will agree that learning an important lesson sounds like a positive step. Learning is good and lessons prepare us. Fun or not, learning lessons is good for us.
Most of us will agree that making mistakes can be embarrassing and painful.
Some of us will realize that mistakes and missteps are opportunities to change and learn and grow. Choosing to see “failures” that way is a game-changer! When faced with a mistake, press the pause button, take a couple slow deep breaths, and summon a sense of curiosity to explore how else you might have tried or what else you could do differently.
The lessons will keep happening. The real question is whether or not we will choose to learn from them, so that we may move forward.
